The teenage years are often the most rebellious stage of a person’s life. It is the time when children begin the transition into adulthood and embark on the search for their identities. It is often thought that boys are more rebellious and prone to getting into trouble with the law than girls. But now, girls are getting wilder and even running afoul of the law. This feature seeks to discuss the issue of female delinquency. Some types of trouble that teenage girls get into ─ sexual promiscuity, gangsterism and self-mutilation ─ are highlighted as emerging trends. Personality profiles such as that of an ex-gangster and a counselor are included as part of the feature. This report chronicles the journey of writing a long feature and the insights gained from the newsgathering to the publication stage.
